Heartbreaks Will Happen More Than Once

Is my heart even whole anymore?


I feel like my heart hasn't been one in a while. Every time it shatters, I pick up all the pieces, but I guess the glue just isn't strong enough to hold it together. I don't know how many times one's heart can break until is permanently broken.

Too many people have told me long distance doesn't work, so when you asked, I shut you down quickly. I was scared of what could happen when we're 600 miles apart. Even though I am the one who said "we can't be together right now," I couldn't bear to hear the words that left your mouth. I would never expect you to wait for me, but I didn't know it could be that easy and fast for you to move on. You said you're "in love with me," yet it wasn't months or even weeks for you to be kissing someone else. It took 3 days. That's all. How can I trust someone who still says those three words, but shows different actions. Was what we had even real? The way you moved on. That was quick.

"Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie? If what we had was real, how could you be fine?" (5 Seconds of Summer).

My playlist has been repeating the same songs for days now. It usually goes like this: High Hopes, Somebody to You, Amnesia, Happier, and the one that takes me home, the one you said you changed: The Reason.

The letters you wrote, the little stuff you did, the hope you gave me, all of it feels like it never happened anymore. I would say, "People don't change," but you would continue and say, "but they learn to improve." You would finish my sentences like you knew what was going inside of my mind. It was fun until you stopped and questioned what was actually going inside of my head, believing I wasn't thinking about you.

I guess it's time for me to let you go. However, you already left. I don't understand how you are fine.

"Cause I'm not fine at all."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
